age spots

At The Lett Center, we offer a variety of plastic surgery procedures that can revitalize your appearance and make you feel younger. However, surgery is not the only thing we have to offer. One of the most key components to a youthful appearance is your skin. Luckily, there are many state-of-the-art, non-surgical skin treatments.

Age spots, can appear anywhere on the skin. These small, brown spots got their name because they tend to develop as one ages. While they can occur at any age, they are most common among people who are over the age of 40. Therefore, they are seen as one of the common signs of aging. As people age, production of the pigment that gives the skin its color speeds up. This can result in small, concentrated patches that are darker than the surrounding skin.

If you’re looking for a way to minimize the appearance of age spots, here are a couple safe, and effective procedures:

Chemical Peel

A chemical peel uses a chemical solution to help improve and smooth the texture of the facial skin by removing its damaged outer layers. This is great way to diminish the look of age spots, facial blemishes, and wrinkles. The deep exfoliation is designed to help improve the texture and tone of the skin. Peels are most effective when done in a series of 6 treatments. There are several different types of chemical peels, so it’s best to consult with a licensed practitioner in order to find the one that’s right for you.

QuadraLASE

This system combines the performance of a CO₂ laser with an innovative scanning system, which gives practitioners a complete solution for skin rejuvenation and skin tightening.
